    Wings are amazing. Must go to lunch and get the lunch specials. You get so much food for under $8. My favorite sauce is the garlic buffalo with the Cajon fries are amazing too

    Gators has great late night bartenders and managing staff that make it my home away from home. $4 bar menu is pretty great too! & the wings are the best. hands down. :)

    Really enjoyed the Garlic Buffalo Wings. Even though they are mild, they still have a bite. Especially the ones sitting in the sauce at the bottom.

    Some of the best wings around. Jalapeño Buffalo sauce is my favorite -- more flavor than heat even though the name suggests otherwise

    Usually always have good wings but occasionally they've been overcooked & chewy, gross. Service has never been great.
